This past Saturday, Mark Reardon had a book launch to announce his new book, Sarah: A Forgotten Patriot. There was a terrific turnout, lots of food, and truly wonderful people.

About the Book:

In 1775 Sarah Hardy is a young newly-wed living the life she had always dreamt about. Suddenly her world explodes. She is dragged into a war she neither understands nor wants any part of. As she follows her husband and his regiment into the wilderness of the northern New York, she begins to learn the meaning- and the cost -of patriotism.


In only two years she experiences more of life and death than most people will ever know in a life time. Although she is not a soldier, there is nothing this army will not ask her to do. From scrubbing floors and doing laundry to being a servant for officers or performing duties as a nurse, every new task opens her eyes to the horror that is war.

Follow her as she falls ever further into the abyss of war. Share her fear as she is caught in a fire fight and her horror at the site of men being mutilated on the battlefield. Feel her anguish as she loses friends and relatives to the ravenous beast called war.


Through it all, she grows as a women and takes evermore ownership of the war and the situation she finds herself in. She and the women with her grow to become an indispensable part of the army and the war effort. Although little recognition will ever be given to her, or her comrades, she will become a true patriot.
